February 2019: Snapshots of 60s summers in Tauranga A long hot summer spent outdoors is a tradition many Tauranga residents have been fortunate enough to enjoy over the years. The Tauranga Heritage Collection has more than 2000 photographic slides taken by Robert Gale during 1960s that capture these summer days.
Robert Gale and his family moved to Tauranga in the early 1960s and he taught at Merivale School until his retirement. Photography was a hobby and Robert was a member of the Tauranga Photographic Society for many years. His son, Alan Gale, remembers his father cycling from their home in 4th Avenue to capture places and events around the town. Click on each image to view caption
